‘It’s built to win WSB’

MCN - - FIRST RIDE - MICHAEL NEEVES CHIEF ROAD TESTER

Du­cati have built the V4 R to win World Su­per­bikes and noth­ing else. Its limit might be on another planet for mere mor­tals like us, but it’s smooth and easy to ride at a nor­mal pace. It’ll be tractable de­spite its short-stroke mo­tor and still has ser­vice in­ter­vals way more gen­er­ous than any of its ri­vals. But push on and the V4 R is so bru­tally pow­er­ful, light and un­apolo­get­i­cally stiff, you’ll need the strength, stamina and skill of a pro to feel the real ben­e­fit of the wings and do jus­tice to the elec­tron­ics, chas­sis and en­gine.
